Barbara Walters: Rosie O'Donnell is my Girl

by at . Comments

Barbara Walters had enough this morning.

In the wake of the Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump pre-Christmas war of words, The View host finally stepped up and let it be known that she supports her outspoken co-star.

"Rosie's on a long, planned vacation with Kelli (Carpenter, her wife) and the kids, and not, I can promise you, with Donald Trump," Walters said on the program.

Walters also went on to say directly into the TV camera:

"But while I am clearing things up, Donald Trump also said that I am not happy with my decision to bring Rosie O'Donnell to this table. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have never regretted, nor do I now, the hiring of Rosie O'Donnell."

While Asians - including Suri Cruise, we presume - might not agree with Walters, the audience cheered in response.

Walters then lauded O'Donnell, pointing to the show's improved ratings since her debut. And that much is true at least. Rosie has garnered the sort of attention for the show typically reserved for a drunk Britney Spears on New Year's Eve.


This is America and I belive we can still think and SAY whatever we like. Is this not what we are SUPPOSED to be fighting for? I have 2 nephews in the US military only 18 years old........I say go Rosie and bring to the table whatever argument you like. Don't let them shut you up...this is not the middle East......Nothing will ever be solved without questioning and learning from all sides! Thanks Rosie - I've heard all of these arguments before and I must far they seem quite credible to me. Prove me wrong but for now...I question Bush at every turn! And my vote counts. Ha!


I use to have respect for Barbara. Rosie has always been a clown, and not a good one. To have them on the same show,... well enventually thay will become the same temperture,....luke warm
